My Top-10 and favorites for 2012 ranged from a legend to the future in music. Bonnie Raitt is a nine-time Grammy winner. At this year’s ceremony she won her tenth – and first since 1996 – for ”Slipstream”, taking the Best Americana Album honor.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2012 – Wow! Peace Love & Abundant Blessings to Everyone. I hope and trust all are in great mind & spirit… Coldplay’s MYLO XYLOTO, a Christmas gift from my beautiful wonderful wife, rounds out my top-10 for favorite CDs in 2011. To my brother Jeff Cornell I have no doubt I’ll love the new “Portugal The Man” once I get it, but in terms of stuff I’ve heard and enjoyed…
Since she appeared on the music scene back at the turn of the century, Jill Scott has released 5 top-selling albums and appeared in 4 major motion pictures. She’s also appeared on several television shows and even in her own TV series, “The #1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,” in which she starred on HBO.
Why do some of us feel compelled to do a Top-10 music list at the end of each year? There are several answers I suppose… for me, it’s primarily to let those closest to me, ones that share my musical taste, know what the FUNK-iest music I’ve heard, is. Beyond that, I hope to reach others who are seeking fresh, motivating, head-boppin’, gut moving, foot tappin’, eye opening, FUNKALICIOUS flavored, groovy, neck bendin’ sounds… they may not have encountered yet.
